    I currently work about 4 miles from home, so I don't put that many miles on the tacoma. Soon I'll be starting a new job that is about 40 miles from home. The thought of putting 80 miles on my Tacoma every day was just killing me, so I bought an 08 Toyota Yaris. It has some hail damage so I got a pretty good deal on it. It feels very strange going from a 4L V6 Tacoma to a 1.5L 4 cylinder Yaris. I was going to keep this as strictly my beater car....but now I'm getting sucked into Yarisworld.com!!!!! At least now I can save the Tacoma for weekend fun.

    With the Yaris, you won't fill up half as much going that far.

    I had one prior to my Tacoma....Sweet ride man. I was getting close to 40 miles a gallon. 11 gallon tank. Cheap Cheap. Wish I could of been able to swing having them both. Get the Sharkfin Antenna mod. My neighbor had a Beemer and was very curious why our antennas looked alike but my car cost me $11,200 brand new.

    What does it matter? If that expresses what I think, then so be it. I don't have to type a freaking paragraph or sentence every post.
